Château Pesquié is a family estate located at the foot of the Ventoux Mountain (made famous in the Tour du France), in the south of the Rhone Valley. The wine is named after the ancient terraces hewn into the hillsides on which the vines grow. 60% Grenache and 40% Syrah aged in older oak. Dark and dense with initial Grenache sweet fruits followed by chalky laced spicy Syrah. A wine that Jancis Robinson describes as “exciting” and Robert Parker as “Smoking value.”


Winery notes (2020 Vintage)
Château Pesquié is a family estate located at the foot of the Ventoux Mountain, in the south of the Rhone Valley, gathering three generations of winemakers. This word comes from the Latin terras, meaning “lump of earth”. The Ventoux region is characterized by alternating hills and valleys. To make the most of this exceptional terroir, vine growers and other farmers had to accomplish the colossal feat of building “terraces” into the steep hillsides. Still today, they are very typical of our landscapes and also called restanques or rébanqués in Provencal. The Chaudière Family chose this name in homage to the terraces their ancestors carved into carefully chosen sites and to the garden of Chateau Pesquie itself.”


91/100 Jeb Dunnuck
“Longtime readers will know that I love this cuvée, which is year in, year out, one of the great value buys out there. The Ventoux Terrasses is a normal blend of 60% Grenache and 40% Syrah that was mostly destemmed and brought up in a mix of concrete and stainless steel. It offers a rocking bouquet of black cherries, ground pepper, flowers, and violets, with almost marine- like hints in its minerality. Medium to full-bodied, fresh, focused, pure, and with fine tannins, it’s another winner from this domaine…I continue to sing the praises of Château Pesquié, which is one of the leading estates in the Ventoux region and is run by the talented brothers, Alexandre and Frederic Chaudiere. Don’t let the prices fool you, these wines are the real deal.”


91/100 Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
“A welcome return to form, the Ventoux Terrasses is a floral, herbal and red-fruited version of this unoaked cuvée. It’s medium to full-bodied, with ample concentration, velvety tannins and lovely hints of tea and spice on the long finish. It should drink well through 2024 or so….Château Pesquié is one of the great estates of the Ventoux. For many consumers, this this be the entry point to Ventoux, so it’s important that the wines represent the region well—thankfully, they do. With Frédéric recently being elected head of the appellation, expect more visibility for this underrated region. While Fred is the globetrotting marketer, his brother Alexandre handles the viticulture and winemaking at the estate, whose impressive chateau nestles in the bucolic countryside above the small village of Mormoiron. It should come as no surprise to anyone familiar with the geography of the southern Rhône that the soils in the shadow of Mont Ventoux are rich in limestone, or that the vineyards are located at a higher elevation than in the neighboring Rhône Valley, or that older vines produce more concentrated and complex fruit. At Château Pesquié all of the conditions combine to create wines that are rich in fruit with remarkable balance and purity.”

    5 star review  I've just ordered online for a friend in another city and I was impressed with the ease of use on the website. Wines are listed with excellent information on tasting notes and professional reviews, as well as being well categorised for easy search. I also called the store with a query about ordering online and they were so incredibly helpful and friendly on the phone. Highly recommend

    5 star review  Amazing customer service. Vino Fino arranged a gift wrapped, hand delivered, chilled bottle of champagne for the morning of my best friends wedding, as I was stuck in the UK with COVID. A beautiful gift. It was like nothing was too much trouble for them. I was even able to dictate a small message. Thank you for your excellent service!
